Tim Chapman, ginger question
I have a plant that I bought from I think Aloha Tropicals about 8 years ago. I THINK it was supposed to be Costus longibracteatum. It has large stems, extremely furry, large usual "costus" leaves, also extremely furry. It attains a height of almost 9 feet. The only thing is, the inflos are BASILAR like a Zingiber not TERMINAL like every other costus I have.
I can send or post a photo, it is in bloom now for the first time in all those years. I would like a positive ID on it, the tag was lost several years ago.
